RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2015

The former LSU standout had an excellent season on special teams in 2014, and should return to the role this year. Shepard played quarterback in high school and spent time at running back and receiver in college, but it hasnít translated to a prominent role in the pros. While the third-year wideout played 154 offensive snaps in 2014, he collected just four passes on eight targets for 63 yards. He continues to work at learning the nuances of being a receiver, and his versatility is an asset, but his future likely remains tied to his value on special teams.

2014

Will aim to reprise his special teams role in 2014 with the Bucs if he can make the cut.

2013

Shepard is a former blue chip recruit who never panned out at LSU. He arrived as a quarterback but bounced between receiver and running specialist roles, never firmly defining himself as any one position, and excelling at none. He has good size (6-foot-1, 200 pounds) and a good amount of experience as a runner, so Shepard's versatility could earn him a roster spot.
